Key and Button Count
your application only requires 10 buttons, and you like the design of a
remote control with 30 buttons, you can reduce the button/key count down
to 10 using overlays. You can even choose which 10 buttons to use so the layout meets your
key layout design requirements. This option is available on most remote control models,
and for both low and high volume orders.
Overlays are used to mask-off unwanted buttons and keys on most models of remote control. We can reduce the key count on a remote by removing the rubber button (either cutting them off in post manufactured low volume remotes, or not including them during the production of units for higher volume orders), and then placing an overlay over the face of the remote that will cover the holes in the top housing case.
Not all remotes are designed to accept overlays. Generally, remotes that accept overlays have an area surrounding the keys that is slightly recessed so the overlay can fit on the remote and not protrude above the face of the remote. Some remotes have a smaller set of buttons in an area that can be configured using an overlay. The remaining buttons not in this specific overlay area are not designed for modification.
Overlays can also be printed with graphics, labels, logos and other artwork. Overlays can also be manufactured in a specific color to match the plastic enclosure of the remote (or any color you choose). Overlays can have multiple colors.
Metal Top Housing? Yes, Celadon offers a remote control that includes a brushed aluminum metal top housing, the SR-48 Remote Control. This top housing is similar to an overlay and can be modified for larger volume orders to reduce key count. The keys on this model are hard plastic.
